I'm guessing I'm doing the results in 18 hours- I usually wait 72 hours but seems 48 hours is enough this time, as the challenge wasn't too big

Can you dig it?!
Would you say that The Warriors would fit this challenge? It is a melting pot movie, and Warriors themselves are very including. They really wanted everyone to come out and play...
I never would have thought of it as fitting-in here but you make a good point about it being inclusive. Walter Hill has proven to be remarkably color and gender blind most of the time - his casting of Amy Madigan in a part originally written for a Hispanic male in Streets of Fire seemed amazing at the time. Actually just about everything about Streets of Fire was amazing when when it came out - definitely ahead of its time. But, back to your question - I think the best thing is leaving it up to the viewer who wants to use it to make a case for its inclusion in a challenge. If the case is convincing then I would include it.

And there's a great argument for including the Warriors right there!

Has something else come up? Give me another 24-28 hours and I can tally up the results for you if you aren't able to. :)

For the bonus challenge, I've only updated the stats to post 82, but psychotronicbeatnik revealed himself that he managed to see all 15 of them. So congrats on winning the bonus challenge as well.

When the flu leaves, I'll do the rest of the stats like most seen, and he last 10 bonus challenge portraits etc

Thans for competing everyone!

I was going to see Roots, which would have netted me a top5 spot, but decided to go viral instead

At least it's notShow

You just reminded me I forgot to watch Roots for the second consecutive time this challenge has been run. Maybe next year.
